私は、あなたたちの全てがページを読んだことに感謝したいと思います。 たとえ私が奇妙であるとしても． Hollydale 作家〔筆者〕はここにいることをとてもうれしく思っています!!
Another post from Hollydale movie reviewer "Julie" !!
I went to see the new X-Files movie "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" last night. So as promised, here is my review of the movie. Please keep in mind that I am a huge fan of the TV series. I have seen almost every episode of the show. Coming from this perspective, I am probably a little biased in my opinion.
The movie stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder), Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully), Billy Connolly, Amanda Peet and Xzibit. Amanda Peet and Xzibit are the two new FBI agents. Billy Connolly plays "Father Joe", who also claims to be a psychic. The acting by Billy Connolly, Amanda Peet and Xzibit are all OK in the movie. Not wonderful, not bad....somewhere in between. Also, be forewarned, the plot line for this movie has nothing to do with aliens or any conspiracy theories. It does have a lot of religious overtones and some strange sexual ones. (No specifics since I don't want to spoil anything....)
I really enjoyed seeing Mulder again. As I expected, David Duchovny did a good job. It is so nice seeing some of Mulder's humor and quirks again. For those of you who are fans of the TV show, at least a couple of his "quirks" are apparent especially at the beginning of the movie. (Once again, I won't spoil you with the specifics.) Mulder does what you would expect him to do throughout the movie, (Yay!!) which was fabulous to see, in my opinion!
My biggest issue with the movie is with Scully, believe it or not. Scully was dark, unhappy and depressing.....more so than I expected. Mulder and Scully have known each other now, theoretically, at least 15 years now, right? Shouldn't she expect Mulder to do what he does by now? Why is she surprised by this? Scully's nagging and back & forth are rather annoying. I can't really blame Gillian Anderson's acting performance for this. I have to blame the writing. The writers (Chris Carter & Frank Spotnitz) probably wrote the part that way to create tension. But, frankly, I didn't really like it.
Look for references to Mulder's missing sister and Mulder & Scully's son, William, in the movie. And take a look at the names in Mulder's cell phone when he calls Scully at one point in the movie. I am pretty sure that the name above "Scully" was "Gillian". (I, for one, found this rather amusing.) Also, there is a George W. Bush joke in the movie that I found especially entertaining. Lastly, there is at least one cameo in the movie from one of the other characters from the TV show.
So, bottom lines....Did I like the movie? Yes, I really did. Issues with Scully and all. On the other hand, it would probably have to be pretty bad for me not to like it. Would I be willing to see it again? Yes, I probably would, but not in the theaters. It would have to be on dvd. (Side note: Realistically, it is going to be difficult for me to watch this movie on dvd in the luxury of my own home. Why, you may wonder? Well, my best-dog-in-the-world Ranger watches TV. Yes, he really watches TV. And he gets rather annoyed when there are other dogs on TV. [They are in his territory! How dare they?!] Consequently, it is hard for us to watch anything, especially movies with dogs in it, at home on TV. And there are a lot of dogs throughout this movie. But the important thing in this case is, Ranger aside, would I be willing to watch this movie again at home on dvd? Yes, I would.) Will I own this movie? No, I won't. I didn't enjoy it so much that I have to watch it over and over again. But, I must say, I am glad that I went to see this movie. It was really nice seeing my old friends again.

Many have never heard the legend of the pheppings. It is a story of a secret band of river dwellers that have been lost in the archives of human existence. Save the whales? Sure ... that's nice, but they are just fish. (OK, mammals) ya ya ya ...
Centuries ago, there were thousands of Pheppings. They were nomadic in nature, but mainly indigenous to the plains in the Midwest regions of America. Some say that they migrated from Canada during the 1700's, which seems totally plausible. Canadians like to huddle in groups of 5 or less.
What is concerning to me is the demise and loss of breeding grounds for the phepping. They have lost most of their natural habitat to urban sprawl, which also causes global warming. (so does blogging)
The phepping has resorted to pooling tribes along the Sagootchie Creek Bed in Mankato Minnesota. There, they congregate and eat chicken from the KFC dumpsters after closing. Restaurants throw away tons of food! (also causing global warming)
Here are the traits and characteristics that outline just what it is to be phepping. Please save this outline to your Google Documents for further review, then E-mail your friends. This story needs to be told .... somewhere, somehow.
1. They have a language based on Norwegian / Swedish slang, mixed with English and Spanish terms. An example sentence structure might look like this ...
"Peeka Seeka kikin hungree ... Verganz me cole oww har! Me's gettin em sem gravy. (grunt ~ grunt) Gettim outa me riva mothee effie?"
2. They crouch down and protect their food. Many pheppings are compulsive criminals.
3.Pheppings routinely wash their hands in the river, but rarely bathe. They have an odor reminiscent of dead carp doused with arm-pit sweat. You will probably smell a phepping long before catching a rare glimpse of one.
4. Many have families, but spend little time socializing. They are far to schizophrenic to ever become close to one another, nor any human.
5. Pheppings LOVE sticks, and whittle them into spoons and other beach tools.
6. They hunt and gather .... all of the time. One report from the "Underground Culture Blog" proved that pheppings will bury thousands of items gathered up from backyards of nearby neighborhoods. They return in the spring (like squirrels) to re-organize and trade treasured belongings.
7. Pheppings are endangered, and need our help.
To donate old toys, canned food with easy-open tops, and sticks, go to the Phepping Phoundation

As I reached in the pocket for my car keys, I found a 1000 dollar bill . After thinking for a moment, I realized that it was still in there from a Vegas trip, over a decade ago.
I don't go to many political functions since the Hollydale incident ... don't click that
My excitement level went up to a "10". That's as high as it can go without involving a chicken buffet or the equivalent. I yelled out to the neighbors, "It's great to be me you sorry MF's!!" ... then sped away in my 1992 Buick LaSabre.
My flip phone was open soon there after. "Hi ... this is Speedcat .... I don't feel so good today .... I think it's the flu ...
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . " Ahhh - freedom, a tank of gas, and 1000 bucks!! "
With my new found joy, thoughts of possible excursions danced back and forth in my brain. ( see post below ) For a while, I just drove aimlessly singing with the radio on at full blast. This is not the typical "me" in the AM. Usually I sit slouched back in my seat and
All of a sudden, it came to me .... why not go up North to the Blackberry Ridge Casino. If I lost my cash, who cares. It was like free money anyway. My turn signal went on, and I exited onto the nest off ramp.
As I entered the grand doors of "World Famous" Blackberry, a few people stared at me. Well, not really at me, but more at my pants. What?? I shrugged it off as envy. They are some cool trousers! Next stop ... the blackjack table. My game is there, because I'm a pretty accomplished card counter. The trick is not to get caught, because they will throw you out - no questions, and no return.
The dealer was a young pretty woman with way too much make-up. She looked a little ghetto, and I liked that. Immediately she turned her head down to my pants. "Sir .... your fly is down"
I checked, and she was right. Problem was, it would not zip back up. Embarrassed, I quickly made my way to the gift shop, where you could purchase souvenir types of clothing ... including Levi's denim jeans.
I put them on in the changing room, and walked out to pay for them. My 1000 dollar bill was gone! I have no idea how or where it left my pocket. Charge cards? Don't carry any ...
Reluctant, my only choice was to put the old brown pleated Norvicios back on and walk back to the parking lot. On the way, yet another woman told me my zipper was down. We fell in love and married an hour later.

All right, I saw the movie "The Dark Knight" yesterday, so I thought that I would do a movie review for it. Like my previous movie reviews, I'll try not to spoil the movie for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, while still giving you my opinion.
"The Dark Knight" stars Christian Bale, (the late) Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman. As you would expect from this cast, the acting fine overall. Morgan Freeman, of course, does a good job. Not an exceptional job, but a good job. Heath Ledger, on the other hand, as you may have heard, does a fabulous job in his role as the Joker. There has been Oscar talk for him for this role and I think that it is well deserved. As a matter of fact, I would say that Heath Ledger's performance is probably the best part of the movie.
This is not a happy movie that would be well suited for young kids. "The Dark Knight" is a dark movie. There is a reason why Batman is called "The Dark Knight", after all. This isn't the same Batman from the TV show of my youth. Personally, that is OKay with me, but it may not be OKay with everyone who sees this movie.
The runtime for this movie is two hours and 32 minutes. That is my biggest problem with this movie. It is way too long. I think that they could have easily cut out at least 30 minutes from this movie. There were at least a couple of spots where they could have ended this movie that I would have been perfectly fine with. I am all right with the way that they ended the movie, but I would have been just as satisfied if they ended it at one of the spots earlier, too.
It should also be noted that this movie was the sequel to "Batman Begins". I did see "Batman Begins", but I don't think that you have to have seen this movie prior to going to "The Dark Knight".
Am I glad that I saw the movie? Yes, I am. Was I entertained? Yes, I was. Will I see this movie again or own it when it comes out on dvd? No, I won't. I have no desire at all to see it again or own it. And that, more than anything should give you a pretty good idea on what I thought of this movie.
So, have you seen "The Dark Knight"? If so, what did you think of it? Let me know!Answer Author Direct: Comments (6) " for Julie" (right click for new window)
